The F1 in this team’s name stands for Formula One, because the project is all about the race. The S3 F1 team is Racing Scality S3 Server against AWS S3 Server, blasting commands to both servers to see which is faster, and developing a way to display the results visually. The project could ultimately be used as a performance monitor, or as a marketing tool that demonstrates performance.
This team is heavily Scality/Holberton; 3 teammates are Scality employees, and 3 are or were Holberton students.
Bennett Buchanan is both: a Holberton student and a Scality employee. A D.C.-area native, Bennett came to the Holberton School after developing an interest in coding while working at a non-profit in Berkeley.
Dora Korpar is another team member with both a Holberton and a Scality connection. She has a degree in Biology, and was living in Minnesota and working at Trader Joe’s while trying to decide what direction to head in next when she came upon an article about the Holberton School, so applied on a whim.
Nicolas Humbert is from France. He came to the U.S. and worked for a company in Berkeley for a while, but wasn’t happy there. He was thinking of going back to France when he found Scality (a little bit of France in San Francisco). It was perfect—he really wanted to do back-end development.
Ian Liu-Johnston is just 3 weeks into his education at Holberton. Video brought him to software. Before coming to Holberton, he earned a degree in digital electronic art and video editing, and worked as a video editor for a non-profit.
Shivaji Vidhale is on-call this weekend, so in and out. He’s a site reliability engineer at Apcera who did his studies at North Carolina State University. He wanted to do a Hackathon, so Googled Hackathon and found this one.
